Synopsis: Before conception Devon was bestowed with a generational blueprint that was the ultimate design for failure! The city of York, Pa. played a major role in the birth of the United States, but unlike its rich colonial culture growing up in the ghetto wasn’t easy. Promiscuity reigned supreme in York, and secrets were kept leaving generation after generation amuck. The people in this community also treated each other like crabs in a barrel where it was common to gossip and wish for the failure of their peers. This behavior and mentality among the typical “Yorker” posed many challenges for Devon forcing him to fight physically and mentally in order to reach his goals.
From the author: My inspiration came from my own life experiences as I grew up in York, Pa. I decided to create a fictional story based on my own life with the intent of bringing awareness to various social issues that plague not only York but every community.
Event: September 26th 2pm-5pm at Music and More by Williams at 52 W. Phila St. York, Pa
